Early Morning Dance

Tiny White Flowers in a Sea of Green Background

Early Morning Dance @ 2010 Bo Mackison

Three Rules of Work: Out of clutter find simplicity; From discord find harmony; In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity. ~ Albert Einstein

These delicate branches of tiny white star flowers were dancing lightly in the early morning breeze. They presented such a gentle, encouraging picture, I wanted to capture it to enjoy the memory of its dance in the early morning when I am given the gift of another new day.

About Bo Mackison

I'm a photographer, book-artist, traveler, naturalist, and creator of the Contemplative Creatives Journey, An Online Workshop and Community and Desert Wisdom Cards and Workshops. Though often not well known, I find the desert a welcoming place - a healing space. Its mysteries and gifts transformed me several years ago. Since that first encounter, I return again and again to fill my well in what most people think of as a desolate region. I'd love to share my desert discoveries and wisdom with you. Please subscribe to receive my five part mini email course The Gifts of the Desert. It's my gift to you.


  1. I can see why you chose the Einstein quote. From the chaos and confusion emerges the clarity of single flowers in the fore of your photo.

  2. Beautiful in its simplicity, Bo. The quote goes with it so well.

  3. Lovely….I saw “dancing dune grass” yesterday as I walked the beach!

  4. Simply beautiful. This is what I love about photography — the ability to take the ordinary and see the extraordinary. Well done.

  5. Wow! Love the image…but LOVE the accompanying quote. So true!
